This is the upcoming Corvette E-Ray testing in Metro Detroit without a single ounce of camo.
The prototype seen here wears an identical body to that of the ’23 Corvette Z06 with the optional Z07 package, but with one exception: the exhaust. While the Z06 has a center exit exhaust setup, this prototype has the same outboard exhaust configuration as the C8 Stingray. In addition, this vehicle sounded very different from the raspy and high-revving Z06.
The Corvette E-Ray is expected to mate the 6.2L V8 from the Stingray with a hybrid configuration, adding a new model to the Corvette family. Expect a launch toward the end of the 2022 calendar year as a ’23 model.
